While I wouldn't recommend this hotel or stay there again, it was an interesting experience. There is only a small sign out front so be sure to have a good map. Upon arrival, you must buzz reception to be let inside. If no one answers, as was the case with us since we arrived earlier than expected, you can call the phone number they provide in your confirmation email. Not sure what you would do if you didn't have a cell phone handy. The hotel shares a common hall and stairs with other apartments in the building. This area is a bit rundown but I guess that is out of their control.
They were very helpful checking us in...spent time marking all the important sites on the map and answered any questions we had. We had requested a room with a view and were happy to find that the room we were given had a private patio with a little table and chairs. After we unpacked we walked to the Colosseum and returned a few hours later. When we got back we were told that there had been a mix-up and they had put us in the wrong room. While we were out they had moved all of our belongings to a much smaller room - no patio or view. They had even opened the safe and removed everything we had "locked up" and transferred it to the other room. We were then asked to get out our credit card again since for some reason they charge more for this room even though it was much smaller, didn't have any sort of view or balcony, and had the smallest shower I had ever seen. We were not pleased to say the least.
The good points about this place are that the rooms are clean and the location is quite good. We walked there from the train station and could walk to all the major sites (Colosseum - 7 minutes, Forum - about 12 minutes, Trevi Fountain - 30+ minutes).
